about us

We are originally from Ohio and have now settled in Georgia but are spending more and more time on the North Carolina coast, with the ultimate plan to be to retire there.  Our whole family and many friends who have visited the area have also fallen in love with all it has to offer! We now have two family members that purchased St. James villas as well as a great friend who purchased two!
